About Bethany Christian Trust
Bethany Christian Trust exists to relieve the suffering and meet the long-term needs of homeless and vulnerable people. Our vision is that through Christian love in action homelessness will be reduced and vulnerable people empowered to live independently within society. Bethany operates services that take people from homelessness through to managing their own tenancy and building positive friendships.
Volunteers should; Have a keen sense of organisation and attention to detail; Be adaptable and able to take initiative as the role may vary week to week, and can be changeable. Be comfortable being around potentially challenging situations as the Welcome Centre can be busy and chaotic.
Training will be given at induction and on an ongoing basis if necessary
